Rome Hero Foxes Bring Back Surf Punk With New Single 'Chest Piece': Premiere

73

Indie rockers Rome Hero Foxes are just one week away from releasing their sophomore album 18 Summers, and the group's third single from the LP brings some old-school summer vibes. Titled "Chest Piece," the track follows a romantic, crooning intro with surf-punk power chords and swells into an angsty beach rock jam. 

Bandmates CJ Burton and Adrian Romero recorded "Chest Piece" in one take, which resulted in raw vocals and tender guitar. The ease the song's sound emphasizes the pain expressed in the story -- as Burton puts it, "a hopeless love that begins light and full heartache only to hit a wall chaos and betrayal when the truth that love’s intentions are revealed.” 

"Chest Piece" follows two previously released singles from 18 Summers, the wavy alt-rock jam "Lost In A Room" and the retro-tinged title track. Rome Hero Foxes' final single before the album's July 27 release combines the throwback and current sounds the Houston-based group channels with their music, hinting that 18 Summers will have a little something for everyone.
